About Gerhard Steidl

Gerhard Steidl began working as a designer and printer in 1967. He started out printing posters for art exhibitions, and very soon Joseph Beuys and other artists were among his customers. In 1972, the first Steidl book, Befragung der documenta (Questioning documenta) was published. From political non- fiction, he expanded into literature and selected art and photography books.

Since 1993, Steidl has held the worldwide rights to the work of Nobel Prize laureate Günter Grass. Celebrating some of the most distinctive voices in contemporary literature, Steidl publishes German literature as well as translations from French, English and Icelandic. In 1996, Steidl started his own photo book program.

What began as a backyard enterprise has evolved into one of the most sophisticated and distinguished printing and publishing company in the world. Whether fashion, art or literature, Steidl sees himself as the artist and author’s ally, helping him or her “to do magic”, to create an object of art and to get it out to the readers.

Gerhard Steidl is furthermore active as a curator, conceiving and producing photography exhibitions worldwide. Recent exhibitions include “Robert Frank: Books and Films, 1947–2016”; Karl Lagerfeld, “The Little Black Jacket” (for Chanel); Karl Lagerfeld, “The Glory of Water” (for Fendi); and Alessandra d’Urso, “For Friends” (for Alessandra Borghese/Louis Vuitton).
